Sounds good, should I do more miles or keep it at the same as my schedule?

Cycle for the same amount of time and effort as you would be running.

Since cycling is non-impact, you'll most likely be able to do more if you want to.

CrossFit: more of an aerobic WO w/lots of body weight stuff
Total in 3 rounds: (100m run, 50 reps of PU, 100m run, 50 reps SU, 100m run 50 reps squats, 100m run 50 hip extensions) repeat 3 times

150 pushup - half were strict on the toes, half were with the lightest band assistance
150 sit-ups
150 air squats
150 hip extensions using the stand
1200 m run

It looked a little harder that it acually was. Ya just gotta keep moving

Squat without weight - basically a deep knee bend. The object in this kind of workout is fast, but perfect form.

Breethe, thanks for checking in despite computer problems. Feeling pretty tired might be more about diet, than exercise – how’s your protein? Exciting to be losing inches!

Pam, an encore career is appealing, but, I fear that this is a young person’s game, the body does get less able (although there might be a valuable role for older trainers who know about that!). sounds like a challenging Cross Fit.

UrbanMule, sounds like you chose your name wisely, you are stubborn, glad to see Coach jumped in to keep you from getting hurt!

Today was a short run (5K in 30 minutes, with a fancy elevation program, I slowed down to 6 MPH fo rth high hills, and pushed at 7 mph for the lesser elevation stretchs. This was followed by a good boot camp class.

The Y is doing great, they lowered fees (how many organizations send you an e-mail saying “we’re lowering our rates”), and they have lots of early morning people now – we ‘gymmers’ support the overall program (you know, the kid stuff, the computer training, all the nice responsible stuff that makes me love that it’s a Y!). Classes have been nice and full, not too full but enough to make it feel like they won’t cancel.

Weekend is going to be bad, we’re taking a little 4 day celebration trip to Chicago, where we met, dated, and went to school together. I do not plan to behave, and it begins tomorrow.

Stay Fit Friends!

Abby

I finished my exercise today. Running 2 miles, then home workout.
I feel great and tomorrow will be no different.

James welcome - "Tomorrow will be no different" that's inspring - go for it!

I'm posting this because if I say it, I will do it

Tomorrow,
  • I'm going to stay on a treadmill with some hill on it for 60 minutes.
  • My average speed will not go below ten minute miles (6 MPH) - I will plan on completing 10K, so I'll have to have a few faster moments, but I will keep it at 6 MPH at the
beginnig so I have endurance.

This will be my longest time.

Now, If I don't post success tomorrow, yell at me!

Abby
